The comsetics’ market has found yet another application for droppers, liquid foundation.
With the foundation formulae becoming more complex and liquid, there had to be a new way to apply them, as they are usually messy, spurt out too much or clog up. The use of a dropper avoids that, applying the necessary drops in the right place. With the use of a wiper in the bottle neck the dropper pipette is swiped clean, avoiding a messy neck thread. The pipette doesn’t clog up and no wiping of residue product on the spout is necessary, avoiding contamination. Another plus is that the restitution rate from a dropper pack is much higher than from a pump.
Foundation make-up packs can use classic bulb droppers or push button droppers, depending upon whether a pinch or just a single finger push is preferred and if the bulb is aesthetically pleasing as part of the packaging, or better hidden within the confines of the cap.
